If you’re looking for dairy-free milk alternatives then try homemade almond milk. Make it at home with just a couple of ingredients and your trusty blender. Delicious.
150g raw almonds
450ml water, plus more for soaking
1 tbsp honey or sugar, optional
- In a bowl place the almonds and cover with around an inch of water. Soak overnight or longer if you want a creamier taste
- Drain and rinse the almonds
- Place the almonds in your blender and cover with 450ml of water
- Blend at the highest speed for 2 minutes or until the almonds have formed a porridge-like consistency; the water should be white and opaque
- Line a strainer with a cheesecloth or a clean handkerchief and place over a measuring cup; strain the almonds
- Twist the cheesecloth or handkerchief to extract as much almond milk as possible
- Add honey or sugar if you want to sweeten
- Froth using a VonShef Milk Frother and add to coffee for the perfect almond latte.
